What to Expect From a Spinal Adjustment
At Ideal Health, our licensed chiropractor has undergone years of professional training and can provide spinal adjustments that will help deliver the results you are looking for. First, we will assess your condition to develop a custom treatment strategy for your needs. After a physical examination and consultation, our chiropractor will use a series of manual techniques to improve your condition.
While your spine may seem like any other bone in the body, it is actually a key component of your mobility. Your spine is also responsible for protecting the spinal cord, a column of nerves that transmits messages from your brain to the rest of the body. Keeping your spine is good shape is important for your overall health.
The adjustment process typically involves a high pressure arm thrust applied to specific areas of the vertebra. This will lead to audible releases of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. These built up gases are released from your spine which helps to ease joint pressure.
But why exactly should you seek out a chiropractic adjustment? Here are just a few of the top reasons.
1. Noninvasive Treatment
The most common condition chiropractors treat is neck and back pain. These common and painful conditions may appear to require long-term medication prescriptions or surgery. However, those treatments can often be expensive and may require long periods of trial or recovery.
Getting a spinal manipulation is a more efficient, noninvasive alternative to other forms of back treatments. This way, your body can heal in the most natural way possible for a fraction of the cost.
2. Improved Cognitive Performance
Since the manual therapy is impacting the central nervous system, it’s healing expands beyond the specific area treated. A painful spinal cord injury, from car accidents or hard falls, can impact nearly the entire body and can cause loss in nerve communications from the brain (ninds.nih.gov).
Realigning the spine with mechanical force can greatly contribute to the healing process. When dysfunctional spinal joints are adjusted and corrected, your sensory and motor functions will likely be improved.
3. Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is more common than you may think. On average, 1 out of every 3 American adults has high blood pressure. Many Americans rely on various medications to lower their blood pressure and keep it at a healthy level.
Research has shown that spinal manipulations can significantly lower high blood pressure. Reason being, spinal manipulation can help with movement dysfunctions beyond your physical mobility. While many factors can contribute to high blood pressure, an aligned spine can make a world of difference. If you suffer from high blood pressure, try out an adjustment for a change.
4. Boost Your Immune System
Having a healthy immune system requires a varied approach. Proper nutrition, exercise, and self-care are great ways to boost your immune system, but those tactics can only do so much.
Studies have shown that a spinal manipulation can actually increase your white blood cell count (the cells that fight off diseases and infections). This increase may occur within just 15 minutes of the spinal manipulation! So, if you hope to avoid the flu this year, it may be a good idea to get a quick adjustment.
5. Spinal Manipulations Can Treat a Variety of Conditions
Remember, your spine is connected to many other functions of your body. A visit to the chiropractor can help relieve and treat a range of medical conditions. These could include:
- Headaches or migraines
- Body posture
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Fertility issues and menstrual problems
- And much more!
